life off its axis in Casey s world He wants to know everything about her However Casey doesn t have the best past and doesn t want to talk about it ever In her world some things are better left unsaid But Daniel keeps pushing and then he pushes til Casey caves and tells but by then he s also pushed her away and it s The Sisters of Sinai going to take a lot toet them back First off I LOVE the cover Definitely attention rabbingThe story though was missing something I loved that Casey was a DJ and I wish we could ve seen of that we ot a limpse but I wanted I feel like we learn she s a business major because it s safe but she really loves music and then nothing that s all we hear As much as i loved Daniel sometimes he really ot on my nerves He pushed her too far all the time and out of no where Almost like a switch flipped after a really Dark Passage good moment and he justot angry and demanded to know her past even after she told him about her scars There was something just missing from this book I wanted a little depth The writing wasn t bad some of her inner monologues lasted uite a few pages thoughI think the story was American Military History and the Evolution of Western Warfare good I d recommend This review appeared first at Fantasy is More FunI like New Adult but I m also cautious about picking a NA book They can be MORE angsty than YA thanks to broken heroes and heroines saving each other But Scratch looked like it could be one of theood ones And it was I think the number one indicator that Scratch wouldn t be weighed down with melodrama came when I met the Delivering Your Mail: A Book About Mail Carriers (Community Workers) guy Daniel He s smart personable respectful doing well in school He sot his shit together I think I was The Vanishing Man: In Pursuit of Velazquez giddy when I realized Daniel would not need saving in Scratch And so I proceeded to fall for him As does our main character Casey Now life can t be perfect or where would the story be right So yeah Casey has some issues But there were two t ARC from Netgalley for an honest reviewReview coming soonWonderfulamazingsurprisingmovingemotionalgut wrenching story about Casey a DJ

do we et to o behind the scenes with a deejay I was really excited to s I received a copywe et to o behind the scenes with a deejay I was really excited to s I received a copy exchange for a honest reviewAs with most of New Adult books Scratch is an emotional romance between two college aged characters one of which is scarred and broken In Scratch we meet Casey and Daniel In some ways Casey is not your typical New Adult character After a violent event in her childhood Casey closed herself off from people What I loved about Casey was the fact that she was a She can pour her heart and soul into her music Casey She can pour her heart and soul into her music Casey is to express herself with music in ways she can t with people However I would have loved to see of Casey in her element She loves being able to watch people move on the dance floor knowing that it is her music that sets them free The change she oes through in the story is remarkable With Daniel and her roommate by her side Casey ets the courage to talk about her past and create connections with her classmates As for Daniel he was the perfect boyfriend He wants Casey to be happy and he hopes that she ll find happiness with him Although he does o about it all wrong He pushes her to face her past and nearly pushes too far The majority of their relationship is focused on Daniel trying to The Prodigal Prophet: Jonah and the Mystery of God's Mercy get Casey to tell him the truth about what happened to her family We learn a lot about Daniel through Casey s eyes but other than the fact that he s from a loving family we really don tet to know much about him This is one book where I wished we had Deal Maker (Mixed Messages Book 2) (English Edition) gotten both perspectives and I think it would haveiven Daniel depth I respected how slowly Casey and Daniel s relationship progressed They start off as simply classmates before it Godmanstone Blues grew into friendship and eventually their romance blossomed I felt that pacing of their relationship was perfect Never once did I wish they moved faster or wished they would slow down Overall I thought Scratch was an enjoyable book with two characters I could find myself rooting for I wanted Casey to overcome her past and to have some kind of a future with Daniel Scratch was my introduction into the author s world and I look forward to becoming acuainted with Rhonda s work in the future uick review for a fairly uick read I think the only thing I can say that wasood about Scratch was that it was a mercifully uick read Oddly enough that was also the major problem with it This first read I ve perused by Rhonda Helms has an ironic name attached to it because reading this felt like the narrative only barely skimmed the surface of all the themes it chose to touch upon for the story The idea for the premise actually isn t bad at all a Ramp Rats: A Graphic Guide Adventure girl passionate about music DJing at a club has torapple with events of her past while finding love at the same time It s formulaic but I thought I d be in for a better read than what was handed to me And that cover man It s a My Name is Abu Salem good cover I love the colors and the thematicpromise of a music themeBut that s all it was an empty promiseThe writing in this was terrible I kid you not Besides the paint by numbers adaptation of New Adult thematics I think the writing was the thing that ruined this narrative for me the most It was far too shallow with its presentation of everything from the heroine s problems to the instalust between Casey and Daniel to justeverything It s not the plot itself that s the problem because a better writer could ve made that formula work Here Dude no I ve never read a heroine whose nipples pebbled so much at the mere touch or just for standing in the vicinity of the hero Or the way she kept saying over and over again that she never felt anything like insert experience here before It beats you over the head and the emotion feels forced and falseAnd I still can tet over how one can fluff their boobs Yeah I can t recommend this one sadly There are much better narratives that actually take the time and energy to develop their characters scenarios and tragic circumstances with much maturity and value than this did and it was to its own disservice that the presentation did not work for itOverall score 055 starsNote I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher 4 HEARTSARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed reading this book It wasn t what I expected When I started it I was a bit hesitant because I wasn t that all into it but I think it was just me and not the book I think I was just in a funk so I put it on hold and started another book and then ot back to this and after that I didn t have any problems etting Ut inexplicably Daniel refuses to pay attention to the walls she's put up Like Casey he's a senior In every other way he's her opposite Sexy open effortlessly charming Daniel is willing to take chances and show his feelings For some reason Casey can't fathom he's intent on drawing her out of he.
